Shopping for Folding Electric Bikes for RV and Boat Use – eBike Replacement Time!

We purchased our first set of electric folding bikes back in 2015 – two e-Joe Epik SEs. We’ve been pretty happy with them, but it’s time to replace them.

Sharing a bit about our old bikes, how our needs have shifted, what we’re seeking next and what our top contenders are – e-Joe Epik Swans, Lectric XP and Blix Vika+.

Would love to hear your comments and ideas on eBikes you love!

Our blog post version also has a comprehensive list of the bikes we are considering and those we have ruled out (far more than we covered in this video):

We’re Cherie & Chris and we’ve been full time technomads since 2006. We are owned by Kiki (meow).

We have a fleet of nomadic vessels that we split our time between – a 1961 GM 4106 vintage bus, a 1999 Bayliner 4788 motor yacht and a 2016 Travato 59G van conversion. You’ll find RV, van and boat life content here, as we feel inspired to share – sometimes topical, sometimes travelogues, sometimes just hanging out.

We love sharing a slice of our life with others, and also blog at Facebook and Instagram. We use the name ‘Technomadia’ in all those places. Come join the adventure however you choose!

Income generation is NOT a goal of ours under the ‘Technomadia’ brand – we do this for fun. While not an expectation, sharing the love back sure keep us inspired to keep sharing. Ways you can say thanks here: (but honestly, leaving comments is awesome!)

Our full time ‘job’ is running the Mobile Internet Resource Center, where we track and educate RVers and cruisers on their options for keeping connected. Come join us at for news, guides, reviews and courses. We also have a dedicated YouTube channel you can subscribe to. Through member funding, we can give away a lot of free content – and our members get even more.
